series of breaches since president trump's decision to abandon the nuclear deal and impose sanctions on iran nbc's ali arouzi breaks it down for us >> reporter: iran just announced it will take the next step in its stage by-stage move away from the landmark 2015 nuclear deal in response to u.s. sanctions. at a cabinet meeting iran's president hassan rouhani announced the fourth step since july iran is taking to shed its xhimths to the jcpoa, otherwise known as the iran nuclear deal he says iran will start the fourth step at the four-day nuclear plant where they have 1,044 century fooujz the centrifuges there under the terms of the deal are allowed to spin empty without uranium hexafluoride gas all 1,044 centrifuges will have gas injected in them spinning over 1,000 centurifuge
is by far the biggest step iran has take nen breach of the jcpoa. the centrifuges are not allowed to be used for enrichment, only civil uses by injecting gas into them they can start enriching uranium. that means the facility will become an active nuclear site rather than a research plant as permitted under the deal also under the terms of the deal iran agrees to install no more than 5,060 of the oldest and least efficient centrifuges at the natanz nuclear facility until 2026 and not to carry out any enrichment till 2031 but not only are they enriching but also running sixth generation as opposed to fourth generation centrifuges at natanz which gives them the ability to significantly speed up the process and breach the 20% enriched uranium threshold this is highly significant because the most laborious, the most difficult part of
enrichment is between zero to 20%. once this level is reached enrichment can be boosted to 90% very rapidly, which is what is needed for a nuclear bomb. something iran says it is not pursuing ali arouzi, nbc news, tehran just ahead, you can soon catch dolly parton working 9 to 5 on netflix and buffalo wild wings feeling the heat this morning. the growing outrage after a black family w aedo ve taes blto be honest a little dust it never bothered me. until i found out what it actually was. dust mite droppings! eeeeeww! dead skin cells! gross! so now, i grab my swiffer sweeper and heavy-duty dusters. duster extends to three feet to get all that gross stuff gotcha! and for that nasty dust on my floors, my sweeper's on it. the textured cloths grab and hold dirt and hair no matter where dust bunnies hide. no more heebie jeebies. phew. glad i stopped cleaning and started swiffering.
